MannKind  announced that results of a new 16-week trial show that the investigational ultra rapid acting mealtime insulin, AFREZZA (insulin human [rDNA origin]) Inhalation Powder, combined with basal insulin, is clearly non-inferior to standard therapy insulin lispro, a rapid acting insulin (also combined with basal insulin), in reducing HbA1c levels in subjects with inadequately controlled type 1 diabetes. In addition, patients treated with AFREZZA had statistically significant lower rates of hypoglycemia, post-prandial glucose levels when measured at 30, 60, 90 and 120 minutes, and fasting blood glucose levels when compared to subcutaneously injected insulin lispro.
